Repetition of basic thermodynamics applied on combustion engines. Common idealised processes, turbocharging and charge-air cooling are included.
The basics in combustion for diesel- and SI-engines are discussed.
A modern car engine is disassembled and assembled.
A passenger car engine is tested in a lab exercise.
A written assigment is submitted on the diesel engine.
Ignition- and fuel- and control-systems are discussed.
Intended learning outcomes *
The aim of the course is to give
To give a good foundation for working with use and implementation of engines in vehicles and transportation systems and how the engine and it's fuels interacts with it's boundaries (vehicle and environment).
General orientation of the main characteristics of current internal combustion engines
Knowledge about related thermodynamic and combustion
Knowledge in exhaust emissions from CI- and SI-engines and how to reduce them
Obtain enough knowledge about the ICE to select appropriate engine and fuel for a given application
